Andrea Iannone’s helmet designs are usually bold and bright, but this one takes it to a new level. This is the official replica of the helmet that Andrea Iannone wore for the Italian MotoGP at Mugello in 2015, called ‘Rosso Mugello‘, and it is available to buy in the KYT Falcon range.
Iannone is no stranger to one-off helmet designs, and like Valentino Rossi, Iannone usually has special helmet graphics ready to unveil for his home race at Mugello. In 2015 he came to the track with a tribute to all things Italian at Mugello – the track, the fans, his family and team, and of course, Ducati.
Designed by Aldo Drudi, the helmet is bright red as a tribute to Ducati and the word ‘Rosso’ in white lettering runs across the front of the helmet in big letters. ‘Rosso’ is the Italian word for red.
The Italian tricolor of red, white, and green runs as a stripe around the visor and across the top of the front of the helmet. The official Ducati logo is positioned on the top and on either side of the chin of the helmet, while Iannone’s race number ’29’ is featured prominently on the top and rear of the lid. The back of the helmet features the word ‘Mugello’ in large white text with a silhouette of a Ducati Desmosedici behind it. Iannone also used the helmet to pay tribute to his team by featuring their faces stamped around the base of the helmet.
It is a stunning looking helmet and the only thing that the replica doesn’t have is the photos of Iannone’s team around the base. The helmet obviously brought Iannone some extra luck and determination, as he managed to claim his first pole position, smashing the Mugello lap record in the process, with a lap of 1’46.489, the fastest ever time recorded by a motorbike around the 5.2km Autodromo del Mugello.
Iannone said of his pole position:
“I am very pleased with how things went today! For sure in my condition, this result was in no way expected, but in the end me and my team did a great job and we managed to improve. For me this pole position is really important because yesterday was a difficult day, one in which I was unable to understand if the bike was improving or not. Today on the other hand we improved a lot and now I am extremely satisfied. My team was perfect and the GP15 went really well, I set the new circuit record and the new top speed record. The only problem I have at the moment is my shoulder condition, because it needs more time to get back to 100%: tomorrow will be a tough race but I will not give in.”
The good news is that this replica is pretty affordable – the KYT Falcon range can usually be picked up for around £125 / $172 / 152 Euro, making this one of the most affordable ways to get an official MotoGP race replica with incredible graphics. Iannone wore KYT helmets for a number of years in MotoGP and there are a few different Iannone replicas currently avaiulable in the range.
